Same style. I think originals were 14.25 inches (36.2 cm).

Hey Davi - I hope all is well with you these days.


The flat top shocks on ebay are correct for the 60. The shocks for your 65 are similar but not the same.


If you want pictures of the correct 65-66 shocks, DM me your email address, I haven't found the need to for a photo hosting site after the photo bucket disaster.
